Artisan crafted statement necklace made from Ghanian glass beads.
/ahwenneɛ/ means beads in akan
Beads in Ghana go back thousands of years. There’s a long and tedious process behind each bead: glass is smashed, baked in high-temperature clay kilns, and later polished with sand. Beads are part of the heritage of Ghana and a unique sense of pride to those who wear them.
